Master of Science in Civil Engineering (MSCE)


The graduate program in civil engineering (MSCE) at AUS is designed for those whose goal is to work in the sub-disciplines of civil engineering. Engineers completing a graduate degree program are particularly well suited to work as designers and take an active role in advanced, highly visible projects. Students with a master’s degree often find themselves in higher demand, able to work on more desirable projects and earning a higher starting salary than engineers entering the workforce with a bachelor’s degree.


Designed based on high standards similar to those followed in the United States, the MSCE degree at AUS helps meet the growing need for specialized civil engineers to cope with the expanding regional industrial base.
